I like plain things. I like plain clothes, plain food (although my Instagram page might lead you to think otherwise!), and minimal make up. I’m not sure why I threw in the latter, but basically to explain at heart I’m a plain Jane!
However that is wear a bright colourful scarf or funky pair of shoes come in. You start with the basics and add a little EXTRA depending on your mood.
I love these mini baked oats because they’re BASIC! And then once I have them prepped I can jazz them up depending on what I’m longing for as a snack or breakfast on the go. I say on the go and I’m making a more concerted effort to not eat on the move. I’m so great at giving other people advice I need to take some of it myself and hopefully my inflamed angry digestive system will thank me for it. I shall report back in a non food related post at some point!
Some jazzing up ideas for you would include but is not at all limited to the following…
- Peanut butter, Raspberry or Strawberry Chia Jam, Cacao Nibs
- Dairy Free Yogurt, Toasted Almond Flakes, Blueberries and Raspberries
- Mashed Avocado and a Soft Boiled Egg, Sriracha or Chili Flakes
- Vego Chocolate Spread, Toasted Chopped Hazelnuts, Coconut Yogurt
- Cashew Butter, Hemp Seeds, Toasted Coconut, Banana, Caramalised if you have time!
Basic Mini Baked OatsPrint Recipe
- 120g Jumbo Rolled Oats
- 1.5 tbsp milled flaxseed or milled chia seed or 1 tbsp whole chia seeds
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 250ml Oat Milk
- 1 -2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan Rock Salt
Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Leave to sit for 5 minutes.
Divide between 6 silicon muffin liners (I used a silicon muffin tray).
Baked for 20 minutes. Leave to set for 10 minutes more in the tray or place into the fridge once they have cooled fully on a baking tray to cool overnight. I like when they firm up a bit more.
Serve as you please!
Store in the fridge in a seal tight container for up to four days in the fridge! Can be reheated in the microwave or lightly toasted under a preheated grill. You could also carefully slice in half and fry them off in a little melted butter or coconut oil!!!
